Bombe Alaska

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • ½ cup self-raising flour
  • 2 teaspoons cornflour
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water
  • 5g butter
  • 4 large scoops strawberry ice-cream

MERINGUE

  • 4 egg-whites
  • 1 cup caster sugar

Preparation method

  1. Preheat oven to moderate, 180°C. Lightly grease and line a 20cm round cake pan with baking paper.

  2. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat eggs until frothy. Gradually add sugar. Beat until thick and pale (up to 10 minutes).

  3. Fold sifted, combined flours into egg mixture, followed by combined water and butter. Pour into pan. Bake 15-20 minutes, until sponge springs back when touched lightly. Cool in pan 2-3 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

  4. Preheat oven to very hot, 200°C. Line an oven tray with baking paper.

  5. MERINGUE: In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat egg-whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until sugar dissolves and mixture is thick and glossy.

  6. Cut 4 x 10cm rounds from sponge, to create bases. Arrange on tray, leaving plenty of space between each. Spoon large scoop of ice-cream onto each base. Using a small palette knife, spread meringue over each bombe. Bake 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve straight away.
